I lost 32 pounds during wrestling season. it's been over for two months now. i've been keeping up a routine of eating cheerios for breakfast, chicken on wheat bread for lunch, and going on the elliptical after school. i do 4 miles on it, which takes me about 35 minutes. i knew that after the season, i wouldn't lose weight as fast, especially since i'm lighter, but the weight loss has totally stopped. i actually put on 3 pounds. i eat fruit throughout the rest of the day to keep up the metabolism, but nothing is working. is there any other way to lose weight?

by the way, i weighed 216 lbs. in november, i now way 192. i'm trying to get to 160.

Bodybuilding and nutrition thread will help you more than the average UG'er I'm sure

actually those fruits are high water concentration and add water weight. Body builders tend to starve themselves of water in order to really tone and sculpt their body. But like the guy above said, we're musicians not nutritionists. Itd b safer to go look it up on Google instead

Body building and losing weight are two very different things.

Do your weight training AND THEN do your cardio, it burns more fat that way. And don't starve yourself of water, bodybuilders do that when they do competitions so they get that "ripped" look.

I'm not sure, but doesn't skipping warm-up (eg: 15 minutes of cardio before) reduce the effect of weight training?

i can't do the weights first because the cardio room is only open till 2:35. i'm not focusing on body building and builing muscle, i'm trying to lose the fat.

Focus on lowering your body fat percentage, not the amount of pressure you put on the ground.

Good answer right there.

Some good advice I've been given is to eat 6 or so small meals throughout the day as opposed to 3 large ones. Eat healthy foods, and drink a TON of water. And by ton, I mean a gallon a day (128 ounces).

Cardio longer than 45 minutes is useless because lactic (I think that's it) acid builds up and starts destroying muscle or something like that. But cardio is the best way to get rid of flab.

Whatever you do, do NOT starve yourself. And remember that eating healthy doesn't mean a salad for every meal. It means in the right portions of the right food.

Good luck. =)

If weight loss is what you are going for, I would skip the cardio completely. Instead you should try HIIT, or high intensity interval training. Instead of running at a slow pace for half an hour, you sprint for 30 seconds, then jog for 30 seconds, for about 10-15 minutes.

Not only does interval training burn tons of calories because of the high exertion involved, but it also builds your muscles and increases your metabolism. The more muscle mass you have = the more calories you burn simply by doing nothing. I'm not a body builder by any means, but I train extensively for sprinting so I do these kind of workouts all the time. Do variations of tempo and interval training, as well as core exercises and weight workouts and you will be pretty much ripped in a few months.

Cant stress that enough.

But yeh, weights and cardio.

Eat sensible.

I dont see what the problem people have about stuff like this :s

Try pulling your intestine out through your ass.

If you successfully pull the entire thing out and then cut it off, you should lose a substantial amount of weight.

Good luck.

Yup it's supposed to be hard. I run track nearly every day and it still kicks my ass. But you definately feel rewarded when you are done.
